Realising The 'triple Dividend Of Resilience' 2016

RRP $354.99

Why aren't we investing more in disaster resilience, despite the rising costs of disaster events? This book argues that decision-makers in governments, businesses, households, and development agencies tend to focus on avoiding losses from disasters, and perceive the return on investment as uncertain - only realised if a somewhat unlikely disaster event actually happens. 

This book develops a new business case for investment based on the multiple dividends of resilience. This looks beyond only avoided losses (the first dividend) to the wider benefits gained independently of whether or not the disaster event occurs. These include unleashing entrepreneurial activities and productive investments by lowering the looming threat of losses from disasters and enabling businesses, farmers and homeowners to take positive risks (the second dividend); and co-benefits of resilience measures beyond just disaster risk (the third dividend), such as flood embankments in Bangladesh that double as roads, or wetlands in Colombo that reduce urban heat extremes.

Hoping to gain some insight on the true significance of what we perceive as important, HEY YOU-How about a Road Trip? recounts the daily events of a crazy cross-country road trip undertaken by three college students. Armed with nothing more than a car, a tent, and a vulnerability ready to take on whatever curves fate decides to throw at them, the Three Roadsketeers separate themselves from their comfortable environments and, in doing so, learn how to gain a positive view on life, its ups and its downs. From almost getting killed by semis, to getting bombarded by mother nature, to getting free food from a religious cult in Tennessee and everything in between, intrigue is found at every turn. So, while there are no grand pan-galactic battles between alien civilizations or heroic efforts to save the world, HEY YOU portrays the wild experiences of three average Joes in an effort to inspire future road trippers-experiences that, with a free-spirited view on life and a small amount of adventurous initiative, can be had by anybody willing enough. Realistic adventure awaits.

A Billion Trips a Day: Tradition and Transition in European Travel Patterns consists of twenty-four original chapters developed by a network of transport professionals in a coordinated manner. The three parts of the book are: European Mobility Patterns; Dimensions of European Mobility, and National Perspectives. Mobility in fourteen countries is described and ten chapters of analysis compare the major dimensions of travel across Europe, which is seen as a laboratory for transport policies.
A Billion Trips a Day: Tradition and Transition in European Travel Patterns questions the uniqueness of European travel and transport policies and demonstrates that, in many ways, Europe is different from other developed economies. However, there are side dissimilarities within Europe. The authors take a deep look at the underlying factors which affect travel behavior, with the objective of providing the necessary information for policy making. The comparative chapters of Part II provide an analysis based on national perspectives of the role of the time dimension travel; automobile ownership and use; commuting; public transport; and international travel. They also review the transport policies applied in Europe, explaining why some policies work in some places, while failing in others.
